Permanent makeup includes several names associated with the technique used, such as Micropigmentation, Microblading, Micro shading, tattoo, etc. In general, this is a cosmetic procedure in which the color will be implanted on the skin and can not be easily removed or changed like other cosmetics.


In the case of a touch-up, the pigment that is applied must interact not only with the skin but also with the already existing pigment. In this process, the skin of each person reacts differently and we can not predict the result by 100%.


Since you come with a defined form, it will not change significantly, but it will be improved if necessary. If your form requires a modification, it will be considered a correction and not a touch-up. In this case, if it were necessary to apply some camouflage, it is possible that there is some type of discoloration, which can not be predicted.


The same will happen with the color. If the tone is apt to be changed in one or two sessions, it will be considered a touch-up, otherwise, it will be treated as a correction.


A correction of form or color or the combination of the two will require a greater number of sessions and each one will be charged independently.


If you want to change from a compact effect to a softer effect or individual hair strokes (microblading) and you have a shade between medium to dark, or require a change of color, you should understand that this is a process that will require several sessions, since first you must change or lightening  the tone before making the individual hairs.


During the first days after the implantation of the color and as a natural healing process, the skin forms crusts that will make the color look darker. Once they fall, a week later, the color will become lighter and the definitive tone will be seen one month later. This is the moment in which you must contact us to establish whether or not you need a new session.


This type of makeup will remain unchanged for a while and then may fade or disappear as a natural process. To prevent color fading or tone changes, it is important to make periodic touch-ups (every two years), to keep the color alive.


To maintain the best possible tone in the eyebrows, we recommend the use of sunscreen, as well as avoiding contact with salt or chlorinated water.


Since not all people are candidates for this type of procedure, you must fill out the forms with your medical history to establish if at this time you have any contraindication to this procedure.


During the procedure, there may be some pain and temporary changes in the skin such as redness and swelling may occur. "Cold sores on the lips" may appear after labial procedures in people prone to this problem.


After the procedure, you will receive instructions for skin care, which you must follow in order to avoid complications such as infections or loss of pigment.


As part of the protocol, photographs will be taken to keep in your record. These photographs may be published only with your consent.


If you are going to perform an eyeliner, you should not wear contact lenses during the procedure or during the 48 hours after it.


You have the option of requesting a patch test at least 15 days before the procedure in order to detect any allergic or other reaction to the pigments applied. Since this test is optional, it will have an additional cost to the procedure itself.


Because the result of the procedure is something that can not be anticipated, once the procedure is done, the money you have paid will not be reimbursed in whole or in part.
